WASHINGTON - If you enjoy backyard grilling, but would rather not spend all of your time checking the meat, consider the iGrill.

It is a Bluetooth-enabled meat thermometer that communicates with Apple devices. Put the probe in the meat and monitor the cooking temperature on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Cooks can roam the yard to a distance of 200 feet, and still keep an eye on steaks and ribs.

There is also an iGrill display attached to the probe.

The basic iGrill is $100, and extra probes can be purchased for $20.
